C'mon just do one or two, it'll open a whole new world for you. A lot of detail is missed on a sideview only, unless it's a Mustang. That Gordini, for instance, will just look like a schoolboy drawing from the side. No offence Gordini, but it doesn't have outstanding features when viewed from the side.

Drakie, this is NOT critisism. You love the cars, HAVE the talent and you can make time. Go for it ! and post your scetches, even if they're a bit krom in the beginning, it doesn't matter. I would love to see them and how you evolve with the scetches as you do more and more. Who knows, you may even become as sought after as Foose, with his drawings, before he rebuilds his car's. Then you can really make a good buck off something you love. I believe you can do this! :D

:lol: You guys are funny :lol:

I've played with the idea of angled views, I just haven't had the courage to try one :oops: Let's see what happens to this Gordini... :twisted:
Thanks for the compliments, and constructive criticism, that's the thing that keeps you trying new things :mrgreen:

Right now, I have to sit in front of my PC, with the photos open on the screen, and the sketchpad on my lap :lol: I really have to save up for a printer, drawing desk and proper light, maybe then I'll get more done...

At least I have a bodyguard for when I become famous :lol: I don't want to be the next Foose, although I have a thing for wheels...

Ranchero, you should see the things I drew when I was a kid, when I look at them now I think W.T.H... :x :lol: (Don't dare me, I may end up posting EVERYTHING I've ever drawn :mrgreen: That means more than just cars)

I'm getting somewhere with the Gordini sketch, it's taking longer than I'd have liked but it's looking better than I had expected :lol:

For now, here's an album with (a few) of my doodles and sketches. Some are time-killers I did with Paint on the PC.
